Empty houses on Broadway, now it's sold out in London. Bah.

I wonder if this will be added at the end of any current and future productions.

I didn't realize it was playing to sold out house on the West End. Good for them!! It is one of my most powerful shows I have ever seen.
Hey Dottie! Did your colleagues enjoy the cake even though your cat decided to sit on it? ~GuyfromGermany

Dottie, I agree! This show was so powerful and I'm so grateful to have seen it. (Twice!)

I saw this posted on FB by an acquaintance of mine, who was in the Broadway cast. I'm very pleased that this step has been taken. I do think it's true 'better late than never', although the 'late' in this case, had such tragic consequences. Still this news is very welcomed.
